For my 'ribbon cutting' project I went with a simply simple treat bag for Halloween



From Michael's craft store I purchased this inexpensive tote bag and felt bat...
 together it was less than $5.  I kept the design basic by adding lengths
of Black/White Swiss Dot ribbon to the sides and then adding a row of the
puffy Bat Trim to just the bottom.  Two large buttons at the top finished the look.

After gluing the bat in place, I outlined the shape with a fabric glue and
Black/White Baker's Twine.  I gave him pom pom eyes and a pom pom nose...I
love how adding these pieces made him even more whimsical!
A pretty Orange/White Oval bow, a candy corn button by Dress-It Up
and my "Batty Bat Bag" is complete!

May Arts products used: 5/8" Grosgrain Dots Ribbon; Satin Cutouts-Bats;
1.5" Grosgrain w/ Ribbon White Oval; 2mm Baker's Twine
